Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies

Overview

It can be hard to acknowledge you're suffering when you come from a privileged background. You never wanted for anything material, and others have it so much worse. Television executive Tara Schuster knows that feeling well but had to admit that, at 25, she was a major mess anyway.

After a childhood that was upper-middle-class but alternately neglectful and emotionally abusive, Schuster didn't know how to care for herself, so she didn't. By her mid-20s, on a good day, Schuster cried openly on her train commute to work.

Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies: And Other Rituals to Fix Your Life is part self-help guide, part autobiography, and a fascinating glimpse inside the world of TV and comedy that is Schuster's day job. In her book, Schuster recounts the lessons she learned throughout her slow rise from rock bottom to a happy and fulfilled life.
